Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Dr. Jihoon Min is a Research Scholar with IIASA's Energy (ENE) Program, having joined the group in September 2015. His general research interest lies in understanding what factors drive energy consumption patterns and how they link to consequent greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. He is also interested in the linkage between energy consumption and poverty alleviation.
At IIASA, he investigates the implications of promoting human development in developing countries on the global carbon budget and examines how we can accomplish decent living standards for the people in those countries. The topics of his previous research include residential energy consumption modeling, system-wide impact assessment of energy efficient technologies, and analysis of consumer preferences for these technologies.
Dr. Min received his doctorate in Engineering & Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University (USA), where he investigated the behavioral aspects regarding the limited adoption of efficient technologies. He also holds an MESc from Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (USA) and an MS in electrical engineering from Seoul National University (Korea). He has industry experience as a senior researcher at LG Electronics and as a demand-side analyst at Efficiency 2.0, where he launched an online tool for home energy/carbon audit with his colleagues.
